About Sauna Deco
For over thirty years, Sauna Deco is an iconic institution in Amsterdam. A beautifully decorated sauna, all in Art Deco style. Part of the interior of the stunning Au Bon Marché department store in Paris, built in 1920, saved from the wrecking ball was shipped to Amsterdam and reinstalled as sauna interior. But Sauna Deco has more to offer than a beautiful interior.
Stained glass, paneling, gilded decorations, sandblasted glass and artfully crafted stair railings. Once this lavish art deco interior graced the famous Parisian department store Au Bon Marché, which dates from 1920. More than fifty years later, management decided on a thorough renovation, where all of the original decor would have to be removed. Almost all of this beauty was destined for the scrap heap, but by chance was the demolition plans were overheard. Immediately a crew went down to the ‘Rue des Sèvres’ and after negotiations with a surprised management – why this sudden interest? – the ornaments were gradually removed.
As in an archeological excavation, all parts were numbered and, where needed drawings were made. A careful and precise task. The majority of the splendor found a worthy accommodation since 1979 at Sauna Deco, Herengracht 115. The building itself was designed as an office in 1890 by the important Dutch architect Hendrik Berlage. In keeping with the Deco concept, important Dutch cultural heritage was saved from demolition hammers and integrated into the Sauna’s decor: characteristic gray-green wall tiles originate from the old Twentsche Bank that was located on Spuistraat in Amsterdam.
